I knew exactly how it was going to go, and it
went perfectly started off well. I’d collected buckets full of love songs and songs about love by UK independent artists, none of the same tired old tat the mainstream stations have been playing to death for you, my dear and lovely radio-listening friends. There was going to be an hour of happy romantic love songs and an hour of songs about love for the anti-valentines crowd, remember me saying that? Yeah. That didn’t happen. What did happen was that I played two hours of love songs and songs about love in no particular order. Some were exquisitely lovely and sweetly romantic, some rather disturbingly dark, some triumphant “Thank you for the pain” anthems, and some sad and sorry tales of betrayal and broken hearts. In conclusion, Valentines Day is a schmaltz-fest invented to sell cards; flowers and pink-plastic-red-fluffy-chocolate-covered-heart-shaped-whatever; UK Independent artists write s0me great songs about lurrrve; and I am a rrrubbish radio presenter. Good songs though. Enjoy. With love, but perhaps not so much sunshine as you might like, Kate.
Weee! Two podcasts uploaded in one day! The (seemingly insurmountable at the time) electrickeral difficulties I encountered last week mean that there’s no podcast for that week, but fear not, Ian Button (the musical hoe) has promised to come back on February 7th. The week before last I was all, “Boo-hoo, my life s a wasteland of misery” and this week I’m a bit more, “Wa-hey, my life is a paradise filled with good friends and good music”. You know how it is. There aren’t so many miserable songs in this week’s podcast, consequently, and I’m please to report that all technical gremlins appear (for the time being being) to be sleeping, if not dead. Yes, I know - I waffle too much and you just want the podcast, right? Here it is then:

Sunshinecast Episode 27 - Getting Jingly With It
Podcast (made to replace the technical glitch afflicted live show broadcast on Gashouse Radio on Tuesday 13th November) aired on Saturday 17th December 2011, 1 - 3pm Eastern/6pm UK.
This show is full of new tunes from UK independent artists and more than a few Christmas songs to get that tingly, jingly feeling started. Next week’s show will be non-stop Christmas and party tunes from independent artists. If you’re looking for Christmas party music and you’re bored of the same old Christmas numbers that get played to death on mainstream radio and TV and in shops, year after year, you’ll want to take a listen to the show, this week and next week.
